New At Whole Foods North Atlantic Region Stores...

I learned recently that Whole Foods' North Atlantic region stores will begin carrying peanut-free and tree nut-free goodies from A & J Bakery as well as their peanut-free, tree nut-free, dairy-free and egg-free treats too! Now, anyone who's been following Food Allergy Buzz for a while knows I am a big A & J Bakery fan. A & J is a dedicated (and I mean dedicated!) peanut-free, tree nut-free bakery located in Rhode Island, which also bakes egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free items at designated times. They have a storefront and online store. There will be six A & J products sold at Whole Foods: 3 peanut-free, tree nut free items--chocolate chunk cookies (6 in a package), sugar cookies (6 in a package), brownies (5" x 7" pan) with fudge icing--and 3 peanut-free, tree nut-free, egg-free and dairy-free items--chocolate chunk cookies (6 in a package), yellow cake with icing and chocolate cake with icing. I live within a reasonable drive from two north Atlantic locations, which are actually closer than A & J's bakery, so this is exciting news for us! Rumor has it that you should begin to see A & J's baked goods at Whole Foods after July 17. If you don't see them there, ask! And Whole Foods folks (Hi! I know you visit here!), good decision on carrying A & J Bakery goods--thanks!

I would love to see these products offered at all of the Whole Foods stores since I finally live right near one.

Plus, we know you can trust A&J. Exciting news!!!

I was just at Whole Foods today. I was glad to see some decorated cookies that are nut-free/nut-free factory items from a different company, but they looked a little crusty (in a bad way). I'll definitely look for these new items.
